Exclamation Electric Light Orchestra versus the Kinks!

After so handily disposing of Blondie, the Electric Light Orchestra are confident of being able to handle even the toughest of challengers. Looks like they're getting their wish.

Which band do you prefer?

Electric Light Orchestra



Kinks

Re: Electric Light Orchestra versus the Kinks!

I can take ELO's symphonic rock in small doses though much less than the Kink's glorious '60s and later but more spottier '70s & '80s work. Kinks by a wide margin.

I'm going with the Kinks here myself:



Electric Light Orchestra's symphonic pop bores me.

One of the Kinks' very best efforts though was this live reworking in the nineties of the B-side of a single from the sixties:

Hmmmm. Electric Light Orchestra have clawed their way back from an early deficit here and are still in this one.

The Electric Light Orchestra is hanging in surprisingly well here against the Kinks!
